Hardcover µ Spalovač mrtvol PDF/EPUB ↠

Spalovač mrtvol Příběh o spalovači mrtvol trochu podivínském a pilném zaměstnanci pražského krematoria Karlu Kopfrkinglovi patří do prvního období spisovatelovy tvorby Vyšel roku 1967 a spojoval bolestnou reakci na předválečné dramatické situace republiky a celé Evropy s groteskními a černými psychologickými a dějovými motivy Jestliže se tato próza označuje jako psychologický horor správně to vystihuje autorovu a vypravěčovu fascinaci zlem a smrtí Charakterizovala i titulní postavu jež se v průběhu překotných událostí a pod vlivem mefistofelského přítele ochotně přizpůsobovala nabídnuté příležitosti ke kariéře vyvoleného a končila vraždami a izolací Je ovšem třeba připočítat smutně ironický Fuksův vypravěčský styl který jakoby neosobně věcně nebo cituplně vede dialogy a popisuje a hraje Působí nejenom drasticky ale i panoptikálně Příběh odehrávající se na samém konci 30 let v pražských kulisách v době mnichovské kapitulace a okupace působí až obludně logickým vývojem malého člověka k přijetí zla; patologický případ sleduje až k dovětku s datem pětačtyřicátého roku Díky vnitřnímu napětí lidského příběhu a literárním kvalitám a rovněž díky úspěšnému filmovému zpracování se Spalovač mrtvol počítá k nejlepším prózám Ladislava Fukse

    I really like the idea of several characters appearing repeatedly as the story continues I believe that it helepd to create a confined but ironic mood Karl Kopfrkingl is one of the most uniue significant and scary heroes of all time The way the author catured his behaviour and his inner psychology is stunning
